The upcoming film ‘Adipurush’ has been mired in controversy ever since its announcement. The film, which is based on the Hindu epic Ramayana, stars Prabhas as Lord Ram and Kriti Sanon as Sita. However, it is the casting of Saif Ali Khan as Ravana that has sparked the most controversy.

Some social media users have accused Khan of being ‘unsuitable’ for the role of Ravana, citing his Muslim faith. Others have criticized the film’s director, Om Raut, for casting a Muslim actor in a negative role.

Raut has defended his casting decision, saying that he is ‘not making a film about religion’ but rather a ‘historical epic’. He has also said that Khan is ‘a brilliant actor’ who is ‘perfect’ for the role of Ravana.

The controversy surrounding ‘Adipurush’ is just the latest in a series of controversies involving Hindu religious figures. In recent years, there have been several protests against films and TV shows that have been accused of misrepresenting Hindu deities.
